Rising star Dakota, the voice behind Jonas Blue’s smash hit multi-platinum selling single ‘Fast Car’, releases her brand new single ‘Sober’ featuring Hackney born MC Not3s, impacting May 25th on Virgin EMI records. Having grown up in Spain but now based in south London, Dakota was first spotted by Grammy Award winning writer/producer Fraser T. Smith (the man who produced Stormzy’s album ‘Gang Signs and Prayer’) who signed her to his 70Hz label in 2015.
Dakota has been in close collaboration with Fraser ever since, and spent 2017 working with songwriters such as Jamie Scott (One Direction, Rag’N’Bone Man) and Eg White (Adele, Florence & The Machine), honing her distinct vocal style and drawing on her diverse influences.
‘Sober’ is the first taste to be taken from these sessions and it doesn’t disappoint! The sultry R&B single perfectly exhibits Dakota’s unique voice, over layered, skittering beats and deft production from Jordan Riley, featuring a heartfelt verse from BBC Sound of 2018 nominee Not3s. Stay tuned for information on the ‘Call Me When You Get This’ EP.
